      Members Only Fluid Forum View   08/08/2017

      Fluid forum view allows members only to get right to the meat of this community; the topics. You can toggle between your preferred forum view just below to the left on the main forum entrance. You will see three icons. Try them out and see what you prefer.   Fluid view allows you, if you are a signed up member, to see the newest topic posts in either all forums (select none or all) or in just your favorite forums (select the ones you want to see when you come to Fishing Minnesota). It keeps and in real time with respect to Topic posts and lets YOU SELECT YOUR FAVORITE FORUMS. It can make things fun and easy. This is especially true for less experienced visitors raised on social media. If you, as a members want more specific topics, you can even select a single forum to view. Let us take a look at fluid view in action. We will then break it down and explain how it works in more detail.   The video shows the topic list and the forum filter box. As you can see, it is easy to change the topic list by changing the selected forums. This view replaces the traditional list of categories and forums.   Of course, members only can change the view to better suit your way of browsing.   You will notice a “grid” option. We have moved the grid forum theme setting into the main forum settings. This makes it an option for members only to choose. This screenshot also shows the removal of the forum breadcrumb in fluid view mode. Fluid view remembers your last forum selection so you don’t lose your place when you go back to the listing. The benefit of this feature is easy to see. It removes a potential barrier of entry for members only. It puts the spotlight on topics themselves, and not the hierarchical forum structure. You as a member will enjoy viewing many forums at once and switching between them without leaving the page. We hope that fluid view, the new functionality is an asset that you enjoy .

Todd Richards is your new Wild Head Coach

A new offensive style...this will be fun to watch!

Maybe now our young offensive talent will be allowed to develop into good offensive player as opposed to OK defensive players.

The wild still dont have any real offensive weapons other than Gabby (who knows if you will be around next season) and Koivu! Other than that we have average offensive players. Hopefully they make a splash in free agency

That and taking his AHL team to the finals and being an assistant coach for one of the best teams in the league for the last two years. But other than his experience as a minor league HC, major league AC and AGM, yes his only qualifications are in the doughnut industry.

I kind of figured they would go with Laviolette as he would be the safe pick with far more experience but I think this could be a good move. New GM and coach, both young and ready to prove themselves, might be just what this team needs.

I am happy with the choice. I think it will make for an interesting next few years. Sounds like a big change for the players...hopefully they can adapt. I do agree with the new staff that it is easier to go from defensive-minded to offensive-minded. One thing I am a little worried about is that they keep emphasizing the fact that Richards is a tough-offensive-minded-exciting-style-type coach. I don't care what the score is as long as they win games. Sure a 6-5 game is fun to watch but only if you win. That is my opinion. I just wish Fletch and Richards mentioned some more points on winning instead of the style of play during the press conference.

I wouldn't expect too many wins for the next couple of years, gaborik is as good as gone, the team will need time to learn a new system, the kids probably aren't going to take any big steps this year and there isn't much coming up from the farm system. Sure playing a defensive system might net us a few more wins over the course of the year but all that got us was a couple of first round playoff exits. It won't be long before we find out what direction the new GM wants to take us, if we sign some nice free agents we can compete, but we could also become sellers and try and get younger.
